IRVINE, CA – JANUARY 4, 2011 – FOURTEEN GOLF, the worldwide leader in wedge design with over 38 professional tour victories, announced today that the company has scheduled a press conference to officially sign Japanese golfing prodigy and PGA Professional Ryuji Imada to a three year endorsement deal which includes a staff bag, head covers, hat, umbrella and wedges.

FOURTEEN GOLF and its PGA Tour staff which includes Arjun Atwal and Chad Collins will begin the presentation at 6:00pm in the Maile ballroom (Maile Mauka section) on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at the Kahala Hotel & Resort.

In addition to signing the highly popular Ryuji to our team, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary, and have a roster of new products that clearly establishes FOURTEEN GOLF as a preeminent equipment manufacturer.”
Imada began playing golf in Japan at the early age of seven. To further grow his game and experience he moved to Tampa, Florida. As a junior golfer he captured six titles which included Golf Week’s MVP Junior Golfer and the exclusive Rolex Junior Player of the Year.
The number #1 ranked Junior and Amateur played collegiate golf at the University of Georgia. In 1999 the young and highly gifted Imada turned professional. In 2008 after several successful years on the Nationwide Tour, Imada made history as being one of three Japanese born golfers to win a PGA Tour event. He captured his first PGA Tour victory at the AT&T Classic and has maintained his PGA Tour card for eight consecutive years.
